Stewart at the center of No. 24 Cowboys' pass game

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Justin Blackmon used to line up one-on-one against a defender, a threat to go deep at just about any moment or outjump a cornerback for a touchdown when Oklahoma State got near the goal line.

It was much the same for Dez Bryant and Rashaun Woods before him, establishing a mold for Cowboys receivers bound to become first-round NFL draft picks.

Josh Stewart is approaching the big-time numbers of the talented receivers preceding him, but in a far different way. He's going right through the heart of opposing defenses.

Entering Saturday's regular-season finale at Baylor (6-5, 3-5 Big 12), the 5-foot-10 Stewart leads No. 24 Oklahoma State (7-4, 5-3) with 84 catches for 1,007 yards and six touchdowns while playing out of the slot. Only Blackmon, Bryant and Woods have caught more passes in a season with the Cowboys.
